The MCA’s Teen Creative Agency (TCA) hosts a free drop-in hangout with free snacks, youth-led projects, conversation, and more!

Mar 24 Program

Type Rewriters
Our personal histories are often very different from the stories we see in the media, in our government, or in school. Rewrite history, by typing your stories over historical documents.

Parachute Consciousness
Do you remember using that rainbow parachute in elementary school? Experience that activity once again to seek out early memories of yourself.

Apr 7 Program

What Remains To Be Said
Everyone needs the chance to vent, everyone needs affirmation, and everyone needs someone to take care of them. Let TCA take care of you with a chance to talk and receive affirmations and care packages.

Move Your Body
Can you dance to your dreams? Practice feeling comfortable with your body by talking about how you want your body to feel in the future and translating those ideas into danceable music.
